Hello! Welcome to a wonderful new week! Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers last week for my Grandma and family. It meant a lot.

This week, I’m trying a bunch of new recipes! Here you go, our menu:

* Chicken Pot Pie (a favorite of ours!)
* Linguine with Garlic Sauce, salad
* Taco Beef Quesadillas (I’m just going to make this up, we have lots of ground beef to use)
* Marinated Pork Chops (recipe below), yorkshire pudding, vegetables
* Sesame chicken Salad (from the new Taste of Home Healthy Cooking, ask me if you want the recipe)

Marinated Pork Chops (from The Big Cook)

6 bone in pork chops
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup cooking oil
1/4 cup minced onion
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp honey (melted)
2 minced garlic cloves

Mix all the ingredients except the pork chops together. Pour the sauce over the pork chops in a plastic bag or pan. Marinate for a few hours. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees until center of meat is white. Or you may BBQ until center of meat is white, fully cooked.

(This recipe is great for freezer meals. Simply place the porkchops in a plastic bag, pour the sauce overtop, place in the freezer! Don’t forget to label the bag with the cooking instructions listed above.)
